Marcelina Gawron - Notes Of Life - premiere: 23.02.2019 (SJRecords 040)
Marcelina Gawron - graduate of Music Academy in Katowice and Gdańsk. Graduate of Secondary Music School in the class of double bass. Within the recent years was a member of many musical projects. The album „Notes of Life” is an outcome of these years’ explorations. Each tune is a separate, intimate reflection told with sounds and words.
On the basis of sophisticated jazz harmonies and engaging rhythm ideas she triggers the versatile emotions with her voice. Sometimes it’s a deep voice, sometimes a half-whisper, close to the microphone. She uses lyrics as well as the voice itself tracking other instruments - both minimalistic and brave arrangement ideas.
The musicians who joined her are one of the best on the polish jazz scene:
- Marcelina Gawron: vocals
- Robert Majewski: trumpet, flugelhorn
- Adam Jarzmik: piano
- Michał Barański: double bass
- Piotr Budniak: drums
Thanks to these great musicians Marcelina indulged herself in her intimate sound space.

„Gawron is extremely authentic; it’s about the experiment of touching the truth, which is so hard to meet in the commercialized world of today.
We are facing a new talent. It’s original, solid, promising debut. It’s worth keeping track of her musical actions.”
Piotr Pepliński/ JazzPRESS, Kwiecień 2019
